with steve kornacki, the infamous steve kornacki. julianna goldman, "washington post" columnist jonathan capehart and joining us from washington, d.c., john stanton. john, let me go to you first since you're in d.c. right now the senate is holding a vote or about to hold a vote on the toomey amendment which will broaden carveouts to corporations who might not feel okay with lgtb employees and just not want to abide by this nonstrip nation act. what do you see for the future of this bill? does it stand any hope in the house. >> the hope amongert spokers of the bill is that by including these kind of exemptions they can bring enough republicans in the senate they can have a big vogt vote and bring parish to the speaker. unequivocal speaker has said will not support the bill, encourage lawsuits, move it further to the right to placate him. it will be difficult for supporters of the bill to get republicans to go for it at this point. >> steve, what john said the speaker thinks it's going to increase frivolous legislation. they have done studies where there are discrimination in place and onl

about the launch of iphone. when steve jobs set up the big event. they had something put together with duct tape and wire. it was like -- he insisted on doing it live, steve jobs. he was pushing it through. it looked like the most ridiculous risk taking you could possibly have. so much riding on it. they could not believe it, the engineers, as they sat there in the audience that it worked for the live presentation. i think there was a kind of wishful thinking in this process like you know what, maybe the duct tape will hold and everybody at the lower levels is like i hope, i hope, i hope. it doesn't. now we're in a different stage of the process. now we under the mistakes that were made. now really it's a question of how quickly the administration can regain its competency and come in there and say now we know what the problems are. we can't keep fighting. it's not time to finger point and blame. it's time to be how do we get exchanges up and running efficiently so we get the effects we need from the amount of signups, get the actual system functioning. i think it's -- if i'm in t

. >> there were texans in 2000 who voted for pat buchanan, steve forbes, didn't vote for bush. it's true scepticism from the left and right will be a challenge for him. if you're governor and running for president you want polls to show your states are behind you. there are lots that won't be for chris christie, lots. >> the idea it's a squish. it's backed up by a solidly conservative record. >> i don't think he's a switch. i don't know if people examined the death of conservatism or broker bipartisan reform or legislation with democrats. >> sure, no, i wasn't suggesting you said that. i think he'll have a strong answer to the people who lobbed the charge of him. he's not mitt romney, the godfather of obama care. mitt romney still won the election. chris christie will have a lot of arguments to make about how he was a solidly conservative governor, vetoed infrastructure project, opposed family planning, all over the place on climate change and so on. >> i think the other thing that is tbd is whether jersey style translates to national politics. calling people jerks and shouting them down

. but it is something we intend to fix. steve. >> do you have reason to believe iran would walk away from nuclear talks if congress rolls out new sanctions? would a diplomatic breakdown at this stage leave you no option for military action? how do you respond to your critics on the hill who say it was only tough sanctions to got iran, only tougher sanctions will make them capitulate. >> let me make a couple of points. number one, i've said before and i repeat, we do not want iran to have nuclear weapons. and it would be not only dangerous to us and our allies, but it would be destabilizing to the entire region and trigger a nuclear arms race that would make life much more dangerous for all of us. so our policy is iran cannot have nuclear weapons. i'm leaving all options on the table to make sure we meet that goal. point number two, the reason we have got such vigorous sanctions is because i, i and my administration put in place when i came in office international structure to have the most effective sanctions ever. and so i think it's fair to say that i know a little bit about sanctions since we set th
